CRITIS 2014
9th International Conference on  
Critical Information Infrastructures Security

October 13-15, 2014
Limassol, Cyprus

http://critis2014.org

Modern society relies on the availability and smooth operation of a variety
 of complex engineering systems. These systems are termed Critical Infrastr
ucture Systems (CIS). Some of the most prominent examples of critical infra
structure systems are electric power systems, telecommunication networks, w
ater distribution systems, transportation systems, wastewater and sanitatio
n systems, financial and banking systems, food production and distribution,
 and oil/natural gas pipelines. Our everyday life and well-being depend hea
vily on the reliable operation and efficient management of these critical i
nfrastructures. The citizens expect that critical infrastructure systems wi
ll always be available and that, at the same time, they will be managed eff
iciently (i.e., they will have a low cost). Experience has shown that this  
is most often true. Nevertheless, critical infrastructure systems fail occa
sionally. Their failure may be due to natural disasters (e.g., earthquakes  
and floods), accidental failures (e.g., equipment failures, software bugs,  
and human errors), or malicious attacks (either direct or remote). When cri
tical infrastructures fail, the consequences are tremendous. These conseque
nces may be classified into societal, health, and economic.

On behalf of the Steering Committee and the Local Organizing Committee we i
nvite you to submit papers and attend the CRITIS 2014 conference. CRITIS 20
14 continues a well-established tradition of successful annual conferences.
 It aims at bringing together researchers and professionals from academia,  
industry and governmental organizations working in the field of the securit
y of critical infrastructure systems.

Call for Special Sessions

Proposals for organizing special sessions during CRITIS 2014 are cordially  
invited. Special sessions will comprise 4-6 papers presenting a unifying th
eme of interest to the conference attendees from a diversity of viewpoints.
 Special Session proposals from active research projects are particularly w
elcomed. Proposals for special sessions must include the title of the sessi
on, a paragraph describing the theme of the session, names and affiliation  
of the contributing authors, and tentative titles of the contributions.  

The component papers must be submitted separately, by the respective author
s, as per the regular submission procedure. Each paper in a proposed invite
d session will be individually reviewed. Any rejected papers submitted as p
art of an invited session will be removed and appropriate contributed paper
s may be substituted, at the discretion of the Program Committee. Likewise,
 selected papers from rejected invited sessions may be placed into other se
ssions. Further exchanges may be made to ensure coherence of the sessions,  
at the discretion of the Program Committee.
